I am experimenting with kernel 2.6 and ndiswrapper. I read somewhere
that kernel 2.6 has improved changes in the wireless department.
Anyhow, I have installed kernel 2.6 and now, when I "modprobe
ndiswrapper" I see a line in /var/log/syslog with the following description:
Jul 19 11:28:21 localhost kernel: ndiswrapper: disagrees about version
of symbol struct_module
and, of course, the module doesn't load.
I would appreciate any kind of help.

Have you compiled ndiswrapper and the kernel using the same gcc version?
And have you compiled ndiswrapper while -running- the right kernel?

I want to report a success with NDiswrapper (http://ndiswrapper.sf.net)
I had with SuSE 9.1 and Dell Linux Inspiron 8600c and Intel PRO/Wireless
2200 BG driver. My kernel is the stock kernel 2.6.5 downloaded from SuSE.
There is not enough space to detail everything so if you want
more information surf to my blog page.
I just got the wi-fi working once, ``just once ever'',
every time subsequently I try to modprobe ndiswrapper I get the
kernel lock up problem as reported in the mailing list.
I have a couple of questions.
If the wi-fi connection is lost, how do you ask `ndiswrapper' to
reconfigure the driver. Once the connection is done `iwconfig'
reports the driver has lost its settings.
First I tried to remove the driver and then reload it again, all
to no avail. I also tried the `iwconfig commit' option to try and
force the settings into the device, but it did not work either.
BTW: Testing the Intel sponsored project ipw2200 (http://ipw2200.sf.net)
alpha 0.2 driver did work as expected (see my blog for more details)
PS: Big thanks to the developers of Ndiswrapper and IPW200!
